After 10 years as an Actuary based in London, I decided it was time to turn my love of gardening and horticulture into something more than a hobby.

I started volunteering at the internationally renowned Great Dixter House and Gardens in East Sussex, and it was there that I started to consolidate my horticultural knowledge and develop a comprehensive understanding of garden management. 


Specially known for its innovative planting, Great Dixter fostered my love of unusual plants and creative planting combinations. As a result of my time at Great Dixter, I particularly enjoy working exotic plants into more traditional designs, creating gardens for my clients that balance a sense of timelessness with something a little unexpected. 

I gained a Diploma in Garden Design from Capel Manor College in Regent’s Park, and hold an RHS Level 2 Diploma in the Principles and Practices of Horticulture. I’m now a Pre-Registered member of the Society of Garden Designers. 


Since graduating, I’ve worked on some exciting and high-profile projects. In 2019, I assisted award-winning designer Jilayne Rickards on her CAMFED Garden for the Chelsea Flower Show, which won a much-coveted RHS Gold medal. And in 2021, I was awarded a gold medal for my show garden at BBC Gardeners World Live. Getting first-hand experience of the complex and intricate work involved in designing, planting and hard landscaping has proven invaluable to me, and I bring that experience and an excellent eye for detail to my own designs. 


Now based in Chislehurst, South East London, I specialise in creating bespoke designs for my clients, incorporating their needs and preferences with care. For each project, I consider both the practical and aesthetic requirements to create something beautiful, contemporary and unique.
